In organic chemistryan alkaneor paraffin a historical name ckmbustion also has other meaningsis an cojbustion saturated hydrocarbon. In other words, an alkane consists of hydrogen and carbon atoms arranged in a tree structure in which all the carbon—carbon bonds are single.

However, some sources use ses term to denote any saturated hydrocarbon, including those that are either monocyclic i. In an acanes, each carbon atom is sp 3 -hybridized with 4 sigma bonds either C—C or C—Hand each hydrogen atom is joined dws one of the carbon atoms in a C—H bond. The longest series of linked carbon atoms in a molecule is known as its carbon skeleton or carbon backbone.

The number of carbon atoms may be thought of as the size of the alkane. One group of the higher alkanes are waxessolids at standard ambient temperature and pressure SATPfor which the number of carbons in the carbon backbone is greater than about With their repeated —CH 2 units, the alkanes constitute a homologous series of organic compounds in which the members differ in molecular mass by multiples of Alkanes are not very reactive and have little biological activity.

The alkanes have two main commercial sources: An alkyl groupgenerally abbreviated with the symbol R, is a functional group that, like an alkane, consists solely of single-bonded carbon and hydrogen atoms connected acyclically—for example, a methyl or ethyl group. Saturated hydrocarbons are hydrocarbons having only commbustion covalent bonds between their carbons.

According to the definition by IUPACthe former two are alkanes, whereas the third group is called cycloalkanes. Alkanes with more than three carbon atoms can be arranged in various different ways, forming structural isomers. Combustioon simplest isomer of an alkane is the one in which the carbon atoms are arranged in a single chain with no branches.

This isomer is sometimes called the n -isomer n for “normal”, although it is not necessarily the most common. However the chain of carbon atoms may also be branched at one or more points.

The number of possible isomers increases rapidly with the number of carbon atoms. For example, for acyclic alkanes: Branched alkanes can be chiral.

For example, 3-methylhexane and its higher homologues are chiral due to their alcanse center at carbon atom number 3.

In addition to the alkane isomers, the chain of carbon atoms may form one or more loops. Such compounds are called cycloalkanes. Stereoisomers and cyclic compounds are excluded when calculating the number of isomers above.

The IUPAC nomenclature systematic way of naming compounds for alkanes is based on identifying hydrocarbon chains.

Unbranched, saturated hydrocarbon chains are named systematically with a Greek numerical prefix denoting the combkstion of carbons and the suffix “-ane”. This is because shorter chains attached to longer chains are prefixes and the convention includes brackets.

Numbers in the name, referring to which carbon a group is attached to, should be as low as possible so that 1- is implied and usually omitted from names of organic compounds with only one side-group. Symmetric compounds will have two ways of arriving at the same name. Straight-chain alkanes are sometimes indicated by the prefix ” n -” for normal where a non-linear isomer exists. Although this is not strictly necessary, the usage is still common in cases where there is an important difference in properties between the straight-chain and branched-chain isomers, e.


Alternative names for this group are: The first four names were derived from methanolether combjstion, propionic acid and butyric acidrespectively hexadecane is also sometimes referred to as cetane. Alkanes with five or more carbon atoms are named by adding the suffix -ane to the appropriate numerical multiplier prefix [9] with elision of any terminal vowel -a or -o from the basic numerical term.

The prefix is generally Greek, however alkanes with a carbon atom count ending in nine, for example nonaneuse the Latin prefix non. For a more complete alcanws, see List of alkanes. Simple branched alkanes often have a common name using a prefix to distinguish them from linear alkanes, for example n -pentaneisopentaneand neopentane.

The key steps in the naming of more complicated branched alkanes are as follows: Though technically distinct from the alkanes, this class of hydrocarbons is referred to wlcanes some as the “cyclic alkanes.

Simple cycloalkanes have a prefix “cyclo-” to distinguish them from alkanes. Cycloalkanes are named as per their acyclic counterparts ocmbustion respect to the number of carbon atoms in their backbones, e. In a similar manner, propane combusfion cyclopropanebutane and cyclobutaneetc. Substituted cycloalkanes are named similarly to substituted alkanes — the cycloalkane ring is stated, and the substituents are according to their position on the ring, with the numbering decided by the Cahn—Ingold—Prelog priority rules.

The trivial non- systematic name for alkanes is paraffins. Combustjon, alkanes are known as the paraffin series.

Trivial names for compounds are usually historical artifacts. They were coined before the development of systematic names, and have been retained due to familiar usage in industry. Cycloalkanes are also called naphthenes. It is almost certain that the term paraffin stems from the petrochemical industry.

Branched-chain alkanes are called isoparaffins. The use of the term “paraffin” is a general term and often combusstion not distinguish between pure compounds and mixtures of isomersi.

All alkanes are colorless. Alkanes experience intermolecular van der Waals forces. Stronger intermolecular van der Waals forces give rise to greater boiling points of alkanes.

As the boiling point of alkanes is primarily determined by weight, it should not be a surprise that the boiling point has almost a linear relationship with the size molecular weight of the combuwtion.

A straight-chain alkane will have a boiling point higher than a branched-chain alkane due to the greater surface area in contact, thus the greater van der Waals forces, between adjacent molecules. On the other hand, cycloalkanes tend to have higher boiling points than their linear counterparts due comubstion the locked conformations of the molecules, which give a plane of intermolecular contact.

Alcaes melting points of the alkanes follow a similar trend to boiling points for the same reason as outlined above.

That is, all other things being equal the larger the molecule the higher the melting point.

There is one significant difference between boiling points and melting combustioj. Solids have more rigid and fixed structure than liquids. This rigid structure requires energy to break down. Thus the better put together solid structures will require combhstion energy to break apart. For alkanes, this can be seen from the graph above i. The odd-numbered alkanes have a lower trend in melting points than even numbered alkanes. This is because even numbered alkanes pack well in the solid phase, forming a well-organized structure, which requires more energy to break apart.

The odd-numbered alkanes pack less well and so the “looser” organized solid packing structure requires less energy alcanws break apart.

The combbustion points of branched-chain alkanes can be either higher or lower than those of the corresponding straight-chain alkanes, again depending on the ability of the alkane in question to pack well in the solid phase: This is particularly true for isoalkanes 2-methyl isomerswhich often have melting points higher than those of the linear analogues. Alkanes do not conduct electricity in any way, nor are they substantially polarized by an electric field.


For this reason, they do not form hydrogen bonds and are insoluble in polar solvents such as water. Since the hydrogen bonds between individual water molecules are aligned away from an alkane molecule, the coexistence of an alkane and water leads alcanrs an increase in molecular order a reduction in entropy.

As there is no significant bonding between water molecules and alkane molecules, the second law of thermodynamics suggests that this reduction in entropy should be minimized by minimizing the contact between alkane and water: Alkanes are said to be hydrophobic in that they repel water.

Their solubility in nonpolar solvents is relatively good, a property that is called lipophilicity. Different alkanes are, clmbustion example, miscible in all proportions among themselves.

The density of the alkanes usually increases with the number of carbon atoms but remains less than that of water. Hence, alkanes form the upper layer in an alkane—water mixture. The molecular structure of the alkanes directly affects their physical and chemical characteristics.

It is derived from the electron configuration of carbonwhich has four valence electrons. The carbon atoms in alkanes are always sp 3 -hybridized, that is to say that the valence electrons are said to be in four equivalent orbitals derived from the combination of the 2s combustoon and the three 2p orbitals.

An alkane molecule slcanes only C—H and C—C single bonds.

The former result from the overlap of an sp 3 orbital of carbon with the 1s orbital ees a hydrogen; the latter by the overlap of two sp 3 orbitals on different carbon atoms. The bond lengths amount to 1. The spatial arrangement of the bonds is similar to that of the four sp 3 orbitals—they are tetrahedrally arranged, with an angle of Structural formulae that represent the bonds as being at right angles to one another, while dss common and useful, do not correspond with the reality.

The structural formula and the bond angles are not usually sufficient to completely describe the geometry of a molecule. There is a further degree of freedom for each carbon—carbon bond: The spatial arrangement described by the alcwnes angles of the molecule is known as its conformation.

Ethane forms the simplest case for studying the conformation of alkanes, as there is only one C—C bond. If one looks down the axis of the C—C bond, one will see the so-called Newman projection. This is a consequence of the free rotation about a carbon—carbon single bond. Despite this apparent freedom, only two limiting conformations are important: The two conformations, also known as rotamersdiffer in energy: The staggered conformation is This difference in energy between the two conformations, known as the torsion energyis low compared to the thermal energy of an ethane molecule at ambient temperature.

There is constant rotation about the C—C bond. The case of higher alkanes is more complex but based on similar principles, with the antiperiplanar conformation always being the most favored around each carbon—carbon bond. For this reason, alkanes are usually shown in a zigzag arrangement in diagrams or in models.
